A group walking with a guide came across a group of Chinese visitors in distress at Esk Hause shelter. They were cold, under equipped for the conditions and had become separated from one of their party, whilst trying to reach Scafell Pike. The guide for the walking group immediately raised the alarm, and Wasdale MRT were alerted, but they passed it on to Keswick, realising that it was the other side of the hill. Keswick mobilised, with one search dog en route to locate the missing member of the party.
Call Out Conclusion:
The missing person was located by the guide of the original party, whilst he was assisting the Chinese group to reach the Keswick Team who were ascending Grains Gill.
